And now Terrence is back-all too willing to revive the dangerous attraction that bound them when they were sixteen, before he walked out of her life.
Haunted by suspicion, tormented by two men playing a dangerous game, all Frances can do is wait while a madman closes in on her-only he may be closer than she thinks...
